Quality and Accreditation 1

 

Accreditation

NeuLife has an innovative approach to care – we believe that every patient and diagnosis is different, which is why we create customized care plans based on the patient and his/her goals. Our programs are outcome-driven and accredited by nationally recognized organizations. We are accredited by the the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) for Residential Rehabilitation Program and Brain Injury Specialty Program.

CARF accreditation is the “gold seal” of rehabilitation practice and is a reflection of the proven outcomes we continuously achieve through evidence-based practice. In order to achieve accreditation, NeuLife is continuously evaluated against rigorous criteria and must meet or exceed the standards of performance.

Quality Outcomes

Quality Outcomes

NeuLife embraces a culture of Quality and Patient Safety.  We benchmark outcomes based on industry standards and best practices and have developed a scorecard for each accredited program to enable continuous performance improvement.

Overall Measurement Factors include:

  • Employee Engagement & Turnover
  • Patient Satisfaction
  • External Stakeholder Satisfaction
  • Business Indicators
  • Clinical Outcome Measures:
    • Readmissions
    • Infections
    • Fall rate
    • Pressure ulcers
    • Medication safety

Performance Improvement teams are continuously measuring outcomes for each of the categories above and implementing improvement plans where indicated. Every patient outcome is analyzed and reported according to standards. A baseline is established for each patient upon admission, and customized goals are developed. Each week our interdisciplinary team reviews each patient case-by-case to develop a weekly progress report and adapt care plans as needed. At discharge, a final score is generated which allows us to measure functional gain from admission to discharge.
